Half Marathon Improver - L2
Welcome to the Level 2 Improver half marathon plan!
I’ve designed this for anyone who has run a half and looking to step up and set a PB.
Designed for people targeting a 1:45 to 2:00 finish time.
The first week is 18 miles or 29k.
The biggest week is 32 miles or 53km
There are three to four runs each week.
The plan has both miles and kilometres.
It is 12 weeks in length, with structured training, recovery and taper weeks.
There are suggested paces for all the runs.
Terminology page describing each type of run, so you’ll always know what to do.
Space for strength training and suggested exercises.
- By downloading the plan you agree by the terms and conditions laid out here.
All the tools you need to get you that PB. Let me know how you get on, keep in touch, I’m always here to help!
This is the second plan I follow, from Ben. It won't be the last. I followed this plan for a 2h half marathon. The plan is complete, and the pace chart helped me understand and train in the correct zones from the beginning. I like that the runs are organized along the week, which saved me the trouble to plan my week by myself, yet was flexible enough so I could alter it when necessary. When I was at the end of the plan, I was confident on my training, and was able to do a Time Trial of 1h59h50s. No races for the moment, but that can't stop the run, right? The main thing is the journey, and Ben's plan was a very helpful guide along the way. 5 starts, recommended!
I went from a 1:54 half to finishing in 1:48! This plan is easy to understand and use. I enjoyed the workouts, the build up, everything! Also nice to have the pace chart included. I will definitely be using these plans again. Thank you Ben!
Had it not been for Birmingham Half Marathon cutting the course short by 2 miles I was well on course for a 1:47/1:48 having previously only ever run a 1:55!
Have purchased the L3 for my next training block to up the mileage!
